a.) Will Chief Justice really sit by for arguments that whistleblower protections should not apply? b.) Did Philbin really argue that Schiff had a conflict...when the real conflict lay with Nunes?

Cipollone arguing that invitations to a meeting that never took place are the same as having the meeting.

@ewarren and @amyklobuchar  are getting all this important endorsement love for a simple reason: They're the best candidates in the race.

Upon reflection though, I would switch Baker and Schultz.

@dandrezner  @jdickersonIt 's a reasonable point...although facing the fall of the Soviet Union, the dislocation that caused, the Gulf War and Tiananmen was not nothing. Anyway, now I need to get back to my Trump Admin odiousness rankings--Pompeo has just moved up the list.

Dear Republicans, Every time you swallow hard and defend your Dear Leader, he's going to make you look an idiot the day after by doing or being revealed to have done something even worse. It's because he's a bad man...and he's making you look both immoral & foolish. America

@realDonaldTrump  Er...NPR receives no direct funding from the federal government. It does get some grants from federal agencies that amount to something like 2% of its budget. Maybe, as president, you ought to know these things or you might end up looking stupid.


It's the racism. But it's not just the racism. It's sex crimes. But it's not just the sex crimes. It's the concentration camps. But it's not just the concentration camps. It's the corruption. But it's not just the corruption.

Something broke in America this week. We have been spiraling downward since Trump's election, but this week, we crossed a line. The President and his men began asserting that they were above the law--and effectively no one in our system did anything to stop them.

History will look back and determine that the fact Trump got this far into his presidency without being impeached was a serious failure of the nature and character of the U.S. Congress and a sign our checks and balances do not work nearly as well as they should.

The Chief Justice of the United States is presiding meekly over a trial that may well have no evidence or witnesses. Thereby, he is lending the gravity of his office and the institution he represents to the wholesale dismantlement of the rule of law in the US. It's obscene.

Those of you calling for Stephen Miller to be fired by the White House because he has been revealed (again) to be a white supremacist do not understand that's the reason why he was hired.

Rosenstein is a good guy. Mueller is a hero who will save us. Barr is an institutionalist. Pompeo is one of the grown-ups. Tillerson is a weakling. Ivanka and Jared are moderating influences. Mattis will stand up and save us. Perhaps we need a mass resignation of pundits.

81 years ago tonight, my grandfather was arrested by the Nazis for the crime of being a Jew. My Dad, 12 yrs old, spent the next couple days searching all over Vienna for him.When he was released, they found a way to come to the U.S. Three dozen other relatives were not so lucky.

On this day in American history...the most extensive plot to kill senior US government officials and prominent Americans in history took place. It targeted two former presidents, their families, a former Secretary of State, a former head of the CIA, senior members of Congress...
